   I can probably swing another one (I need to buy the CS8900 IC, as I
   don't have any spares, but that's not a huge deal), but I'd like there
   to be a catch:

   Help me debug the interface at the show.

   I am pretty confident of the design (it's lifted from my 64NIC+
   design), but there are always things to consider.  Brett is going to
   write some test code for me to try, but there is nothing better than
   sitting down with the scope and the LA and bringing up HW for the first

     Nice progress, Jim! I would love to dabble with this card...thiugh,
     I have

     So I'll guess I'll lean toward a TAP interface, if possible...then
     should be easier to integrate the networking code with this new nic

     Brent, you ready for one?


     I'll bring it to VCF-MW and send you one of them, if wanted. I plan
     towrite a bit of test code to ensure it is sitting in memory
     correctly, but
     I'll have to depend on you to do the heavy lifting.

     If you have it in you to make two, I would still be interested in
     having one. I plan to be at VCFMW as well.
